They never told her this was wrong, all this running and hiding, or if they did she'd never listened. She never thought staying was an option. Don't get comfortable. Don't get close. She couldn't handle being hurt. Her only friend, a worn book, saved her form the lonliness of her life. The book was about a boy, a boy she learned to know so well from page to page. The only person she was close to. Only a character in a book. Only words on a page. Now he's here and alive, this boy she'd let herself love. He's here, he's now. Running seems so wrong. Staying here, with him, is the only option. She's so lost. She's too scared to stay, he's afraid to leave.
